Shooting Stars (Kindergarten)

 Students in kindergarten traced a black star template onto their white paper with a marker.  As a class we drew six different types of lines to make it look like the star was "shooting" across the sky.  Line is one of the seven elements of art that we learn about in elementary school. The lines we practiced were horizontal, looped, zig-zag, wavy, broken and curvy.

Then students used the colors of the rainbow to outline each of their six lines.  We used red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple markers.
Smiling and working in art!

We love rainbows!

Trying our best in class!

Star light, star bright... first star we see in art!
 After using markers, we switched to crayons to add additional color in between our six lines to form a rainbow.
Our Shooting Stars look amazing!

We are going to add more color with crayons.

I love my art!

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple are the colors we used.

Check out my lines!

  1. WOW!!! I love your blog. It made me remember that I miss elementary art. I would have done these stars with my class... I guess I'll do it with my kiddo's instead:) Great idea! Thanks for sharing!
